How To Use the UKFast SafeDNS Plugin

This plugin works against the UKFast provider. It is assumed that you have already setup an account and created the zone in SafeDNS you will be working against.


Authentication against the UKFast SafeDNS API requires an API Application Key, which can be obtained from the API Applications portal. Additionally the key must be given READ/WRITE permission for the SafeDNS service.

For further documentation on working with API keys, please visit the UKFast Developer Centre.

Using the Plugin

The API key will be used with the UKFastApiKey SecureString parameter.

$pArgs = @{
    UKFastApiKey = (Read-Host "Enter API Key" -AsSecureString)
